What I Eat


Serves: 8

1 lb. lean ground beef (I buy 93% lean/7% fat)
1 tsp. onion powder
1-29 oz. can tomato sauce (The brand I buy has 2g sugar in 1/4 cup.)
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. basil leaves
1/2 tsp. ground oregano
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
scant pepper
vegetable oil
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 box lasagna noodles (The brand I buy has 2g of sugar in a 2 oz. serving.)
grated Parmesan cheese, to taste

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Break ground beef into small pieces while browning it in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add onion powder. When ground beef is no longer pink, drain grease from pan, if there is any. Add sauce and remaining seven seasonings. Simmer for 20 minutes. Grease an 8 x 10 pan with vegetable oil. Put a small amount of sauce on the bottom of the pan. Put a layer of uncooked noodles on top of the sauce. Sprinkle the noodles with water. Top with sauce and mozzarella cheese. Continue layering the noodles, sauce, and cheese until all the ingredients are used. Sprinkle generously with Parmesan. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour. Have with a glass of water.
